An 80,000-Piece, 9-Foot Diorama Of The Death Star Trench Run From Star Wars: A New Hope

January 30, 2019


This is the 80,000-piece, 8.79-foot long (I lied in the title!) by 4.49-foot deep and 3.60-feet tall Death Star trench run diorama constructed by South Korean certified LEGO professional Wani Kim and his team of builders. No word if it cost as much to build as an actual Death Star, but I bet it was close.

This LEGO build consists of around 80,000 LEGO elements and is even populated with 100 minifigures. Most of those Minifigs are in the back, where you can see the interior of the Death Star! It comes complete with tractor beam controls, Vader's chamber, detention cells, a locker room and more.

Oh yeah, the whole think also lights up and has lighting effects.

Man, that's impressive. I could see myself playing with that for at least 20 minutes before transforming into Godzilla and stomped across the whole thing on my way to fight Mothra. "We don't even bother buying him toys any more." Mom! "And once we realized he's just as happy playing with cat turds--" Stop! "We just have to get him dewormed every couple weeks."

Keep going for a handful more shots including the impressive rear *licks finger, tries to sizzle on ass, it doesn't, makes promise to self I'll go to the gym more*, but check out Wani's Instagram page (with videos of the light effects) for even more.





Thanks to JD and speakerbox, who agrees dioramas > diarrheas any day.

    They need to show the one following TIE fighter slamming into Vader's, for no reason. Then it would be perfect.

    Every time I see a Lego article I go back to the Lego site and hope that the old school Tie Interceptor kit got magically reissued. It never is :(

    Sadly there's no new hope of a life for these Lego "professionals".

    gooood... let the hate run through you...

  • Doog

    Oh GW I knew that was under 9 feet. Glad you came clean in the article or I was totally going to bust you out! I mean 8.79 feet is no where close to 9 feet!

    In unrelated news, the word 'feet' no longer looks like a real word to me...

    "Certified LEGO professional"? The things one can do for a career these days!

  • That's pretty damn incredible

    PS Borg cube vs The Death Star, am I right, people???

    The borg would win. It has shields. The Death Star has the planet sized shield but it can't be up to fire. Cube can take the fairly light weight point defense lazers. The cube them embeds itself in the Death Star and leisurely takes it over.

    My only question is about the humanoid density on the Death Star. Would there be enough of them for the Borg or would there have to be giant empty spaces in the remodeled death star.
